7:45 Edwin Vazquez
Johnny Cruz from PuertoRican.com wrote : "If you can imagine the combination of the flare of Elvis Presley, the contortions of JoeCocker, and the charm of Enrique Iglesias, you have Edwin Vazquez. I can only describe Edwin's performance as vibrant, energetic, and extremely animated. In one word I'd have to describe his performance as WOW! The audience greeted him with woops and hollers, shouting out otra, otra, otra, at the end of his set. It was quite electric to say the least".

8:30 Poet Jon Winell & Evan Ginzburg reads from Apt. 4B, Like in Brooklyn
"Kalen is fantastic! She owns the stage, gets the crowd rocking and has unparalleled energy."
- Scott Kaufman, New York Pudding
""Baby Boy" was my favorite indie track of 2010."
- Evan Ginzburg, Legends Radio (Dec, 2010)
"Kalen is a very promising singer and songwriter who brings in influences in her writing and music ranging from Pablo Naruda to Eric Satie."
- Ishrat Ansari, Owner and booker of West Village Landmark, Café Vivaldi..
"Vocally, Kalen is a bit of a chameleon, smoothly going from a sexy croon to urban sass, dishing out sultry come-ons and smartass one-liners with equal aplomb. She has an excellent range and handles ballads as well as she does roof-raising tracks."
- Bruce Rusk, Daily Vault
"Kalen has "otherworldly" vocal prowess. She has the rock energy of Janis Joplin, the soul diva gospel chops of Alicia Keys, the ethereal expression of Kate Bush. And can rap like nobody's business. On top of that, she plays super funky experimental rock lead keyboard; think Bernie Worrel (from Parliament/Funkadelic) meets Square Pusher, meets Imogean Heap. Kalen performs with the level of intensity that has not been seen in a fucking long time!!!"
- Gary Poulson, Zawinul Syndicate
"Kalen performs her jazzy/funky songs with vivacity and grace, singing her catchy compositions with soul from behind her polished keys"
- Dan Dipillido of Jezebel Music
